Canvas,  Remote Teaching

Small group synchronous discussion or presentations using WebEX

WebEx has a new feature that allows you to automatically or manually sort your students into small groups so they can remotely do the types of small group activities you had them do in your face to face classroom. While they are in groups, you can:

  • send a message to give instructions, to all or some of the rooms or people
  • pop into the rooms to observe
  • invite people back to the main room
  • end all the break out rooms to automatically close them

When students return to the main meeting room, they have video off and be muted, but they can change those settings once they are back.

The 5-minute video below is a step by step video of how to set up breakout rooms and use the features.
